You should take note that there are a number of people around the world who have been victimized by defective hip replacement devices such as the ones manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. It is a subsidiary company of Johnson&Johnson. Legal professionals say that several clients have initiated court actions against Johnson and Johnson. They were among those affected by the failures and defects (e.g. fractures, displacements, loosening) of DePuy devices.
